A festive time was had by all on Christmas Dinner Day!


Well done boys! Great team spirit and a determination to succeed. We are all proud of you.


We thoroughly enjoyed our author visit. We read the story, created our own character and did illustrations too.


Well done Southgate for your team spirit and tenacity at the netball tournament last week. Those smiles say it all (this was before it got dark and poured with rain!)


We are thrilled to invite Danielle Verbeeten into Southgate to talk about her super book Eddie the Elf. Danielle is the author and illustrator. There will be an opportunity to buy this wonderful book and have it autographed by Danielle herself. We can't wait!


We are striving to improve in all we do. Look at these resilient writers who persevere to do their best.


We wore dots, spots and stripes for Children in Need 2022.
